WHY: “If HR professionals are truly to contribute to business performance, then their mindset must center on the goals of the business. They must take that outside reality and bring it into everything they do, practicing their craft with an eye to the business as a whole and not just their own department,” Ulrich said in his book, HR from the Outside In. “The bar has been raised for HR; HR must create and deliver value in real business terms.”
